The Emerald Princess is a work of fiction in the science fiction and thriller subgenres. It is suitable for the general reading audience and was penned by author J. D. Richards. The book follows out of work pilot Ann Raymond after she gets hired to recover stolen artwork and return it to its rightful owner. This simple task quickly becomes complicated after carrying one of the statues makes Ann a target for both the law and the lawless and she has to fight to survive whilst trying to understand the mythology behind the statue and what it means for her and people like her.
This book continues the important science fiction tradition of using gripping storytelling about fantastical visions of the world we know in order to shine a light on an issue affecting us in the world today; with Ann’s status as a half-alien restricting her rights in this world but also stopping her from leaving for another one provoking some excellent discussion on modern immigration and how we treat people who don’t neatly fit into the simple boxes we understand. Author J. D. Richards has an excellent sense of prose that he utilizes to send Ann on an entertaining rollercoaster of an adventure in the world of future Earth. The worldbuilding was just as excellent, with a dynamic and nuanced world in which the action takes place serving as an outstanding backdrop for the adventure. Overall, The Emerald Princess hooks readers from page one before taking them on a wild journey through a world of discrimination and struggling to survive.
